PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Donovan McNabb's status for the Eagles' game at New England next Sunday is uncertain because of a sprained ankle and injured thumb.
McNabb left Philadelphia's 17-7 win over Miami in the second quarter after he hurt his right ankle on a hit following an incomplete pass. X-rays during the game were negative and McNabb spent the second half standing on the sideline. An MRI exam Monday showed no further damage.
He injured his right thumb earlier in the game. X-rays showed it wasn't broken, but it was ``quite swollen,'' according to coach Andy Reid.
``I'm as worried about the thumb as the ankle because that's how he grips the football,'' Reid said.
Backup A.J. Feeley led the Eagles (5-5) to a pair of touchdowns and would start against the unbeaten Patriots (10-0) if McNabb couldn't play.
Reid said McNabb is day-to-day and doesn't need to practice this week to start against New England.
